The Best Of The Worst
Explosive Intrigue in the Turbulent East
Great to see this book, Leopard in the Grass and the illustration by Richard Cardiff. I own the original painting from which the cover was created. It is much more detailed and sultry. I inherited the painting and several others by Cardiff when I purchased his craftsman cottage in East Northport, NY in 1990 from his 94 year-old widow, Helen. The home was built in 1926, and Helen Cardiff had several of Richard’s paintings proudly displayed in the home along with a scrapbook of dozens of his book and magazine cover illustrations.
Do you have a clear, straight-on photo of the painting? I would love to post it here. (The higher resolution the better)
